There is great momentum in the private sector to move towards net zero emissions in support of global climate action. Join Jonathan Shopley, Managing Director, External Affairs, Natural Capital Partners, at the European Climate Summit, which takes place in Lisbon, Portugal, 15th-17th April, to discuss the power of carbon markets to unlock emissions reductions around the world.

Creating Vibrant Carbon Markets at IETA’s European Climate Summit

On Tuesday 16th April, from 4.45pm to 5.45pm, Jonathan will moderate a session at the Summit entitled: Creating Vibrant Carbon Markets to Scale Voluntary and Compliance Climate Action.

Carbon credits have an important role to play in delivering more ambition. This session will explore the ways in which offsetting currently intersects and blends with compliance and voluntary frameworks around the world. From pure voluntary action, through voluntary action combined with compliance, through to full compliance at scale, resilient markets have the power to unlock potential and maximise mitigation.

The session will begin with a short keynote address to frame the European experience with offsetting, from Jos Delbeke, Senior Adviser, European Political Strategy Centre at the European Commission. A panel session with climate policy and carbon market experts will follow, and the session will be rounded off with an audience Q&A.
